Use this fun math center activity to enhance any addition or subtraction unit! Pair with a deck of cards (pull out face cards) and students will be able to pull a card, place on mat, and then find the sum or difference. This activity is naturally differentiated with a section where students can draw to model the equation. This activity works best when printed and laminated or placed in a sheet protector-- this way students can write on the mat with an expo marker.
Great activity for math centers, fun Friday, or early finisher work! I have used this activity both as a kindergarten and first grade teacher.
Print and enjoy!
